tumbling race

take with you

every memory

of whispers, of

wishes, of

movies let run

while we focused on..

other things.

take from me

every memory

of the days we shared

out of the snow,

in each others’ arms

without knowing

today would arrive.

take with you

every hand we gripped

to bring us closer

from eternity.

take with you

all i see

for it all reminds

me of you..

our time together,

morning to morning,

is too much to bear

on these

simple shoulders

of a

simple man

not worth remembering.

when the time comes

i want you to know

i never walked out

i never said goodbye

i never cried

since you passed on..

too many smiles

haunt me daily

to know that


could be

with your memory.


i can’t see tomorrow

without you before me,

without heaven with us,

without the sun to shine behind us

on our way



they said once it passes

it passes..

leaving me here,

you there,

and loneliness abound.

i watered your



hoping you’d stem from them..


when the night lasted till day woke us?


when the day stood

till the moon guided us?


every second past

the dawn we grew old

and finally

let the world in

on our infinity?


on the rays

of yesterdays

see through the clouds

through the rain in the distance–

passed us by–

laying beside Forever

i see your eyes

seducing Infinity,

reaching out your smile

to let me hold

on to the only thing

keeping me breathing,

that kept us immortal

before mortality caught up.

wrote this some short time after september 11th, 2001. not really for that occasion.. more of a tribute to the one left or leaving.
